How can we build a better future with innovation and creativity?
A youth video competition held for World Intellectual Property Day 2022 challenged young people around the world to show how their innovative solutions are tackling some of the world’s biggest challenges – and drew over 140 entries from 63 countries.
Young innovators from Syria, Ghana and China emerged as the top 3 winners:
• Twenty-five year old Hekma Jabouli from Syria won the first prize with her short film showing a home-made smart device designed to help her sister regain mobility after a shrapnel injury to her spinal cord.
• John Wobil from Ghana won the second prize for his rice threshing machine that improves the winnowing process, reducing rice breakage.
• Li Binglu and Cai Qinge from China came up third for their new pictograms (like emojis!) to connect digital illustrators working remotely.
